about

hi, i’m gwen!

Just a girl looking to inspire others to live a simple life. Sharing my love for sourdough, from scratch cooking, home decor, gardening, sewing and homesteading. I may live in the suburbs but I’m determined to prove you can still experience the farm lifestyle, even if you don’t live on a farm (yet!)

I’m a 28 year old from Toronto, Canada. I have two beautiful cats, Maui & Beau, who often make appearances in my Youtube videos.

I grew up in the suburbs but always knew the country life was for me. I’m getting married next year and hope to start building a family and move to a farm soon after. I dream of frolicking barefoot in the garden, milking cows, cuddling chickens and riding horses, with 4 little ones by my side.

I love sharing my life with others – all the ups and the downs – so you can learn from my mistakes and be both inspired and encouraged to build the life of your dreams.

A Few Fun Facts About Me:

  1. I used to be a fashion influencer on Instagram and Youtube. You read that right – brands actually paid me to wear and take photos in their clothes! Truly a dream come true for me. After a few years though, I realized I couldn’t in good conscience continue promoting a life of excessive consumption and fast fashion. But if you’re ever wondering why I have so many pictures of myself… that’s why LOL.
  2. I lived in the city for 6 years before spontaneously moving to a small town in the suburbs. It brings me so much joy being close to farms and empty fields that I can’t quite believe I ever used to be a city girl.
  3. I also used to be an ASMR artist on Youtube! I amassed over 500,000 subscribers before calling it quits. It was super fun for me at the time, but I didn’t love having to wake up in the middle of the night to film videos when it was finally quiet out. But I do always think – once I have a farm in the middle of nowhere – I might make a few more videos (so long as I can film them during normal daytime hours!)
  4. I was a passionate vegan for 9 years. And now I dream of having my own farm, raising animals for meat, dairy and eggs… Oh, how things change eh?
  5. Once upon a time I thought I’d never want to get married or have kids. But now I’m engaged and dream of having *at least* 4 babies.
